Poor Female.. Dropsy:(


My female betta has a bad case of dropsy... Just started treatment with espom salt. When should i start to see improvement, or is it too late for her? :(

sorry about the large picture, it won't let me resize it.

Yeah she is bloated to like 2x her size and completely pineconed :( I've given her 1tsp/gallon and put her in a shallow container so she can breathe more easily.. at this point i think it might be too late

Yeah Ive been there myself. truth is that once pineconed it is a long shot at best. By the time we see this organ failure is well under way and difficult to reverse to say the least. Your best bet is kanaplex if you have it on hand. Epson salts can help as well but ime your fish is in tough. Best of luck sorry this happened it is a really horrible condition.
